Footprints lain along the beach's sand
are forged not for us to remember love
but to feed the ocean's insatiable appetite
of creating pristine places for her to meet us

She dances because bodies must move
She sings because life has tempo and metre
She walks within the forest's loamy aroma
because the primordial ocean is too far away

She plays lithesome amongst the stars
in that space seldom seen between the twinkles
in that place we too long ago forgot
but yearn forever of returning to one day

Follow and you may become lost
Stay earthbound, where all about you is safe,
but you will never again revisit home,
and, she will sorely miss you then
